Lansdowne and SMH votes a go City lawyer says lame-duck restrictions don’t apply to the two issues for council LAURA MUELLER KOURIER-STANDARD

The A.Y. Jackson Secondary School girls’ basketball team took on Earl of March Secondary School on Friday, Oct. 29 for the first game of the two-day, round-robin tournament. A.Y. beat Earl 57-26; then went on to win the entire tournament.
Despite the reservations of councillors and residents, city council will legally be able to vote on proposals for Lansdowne Park and the South March Highlands during its “lame-duck” period, says the city’s solicitor. Rick O’Connor, the clerk and lawyer for the City of Ottawa, sent a memo to city council advising that provincial restrictions on lame-duck councils would not apply to the Lansdowne vote. Council is in lame-duck status until the new council is sworn in on Dec. 1, because less than two thirds of the current council members will be returning. That means the council’s power is restricted under the Ontario Municipal Act; in particular, council cannot approve any spending over $50,000 that was not already pre-approved before the election nomination day (Sept. 10). Council votes on the first stage of the
Lansdowne site plan, as well Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson’s motion to swap land to save part of the South March Highlands from development, are set for Nov. 19 and 24. “We can still deal with some of it,” Wilkinson said. Council can vote on 12 acres of land that can be swapped at no cost, Wilkinson said. The developer, Urbandale, already agreed to that, she indicated. She said she is working with city staff and the developers to ensure the portions of the matter that this council can vote on are taken care of, while giving a strong recommendation to the next council to purchase or swap the rest of the 29 hectares she proposed. Capital Ward Coun. Clive Doucet said he doesn’t think it matters whether the current council or next council votes on the Lansdowne plan, because the incoming council appears to be “much more developer friendly,” he said.

BLAIR EDWARDS KOURIER-STANDARD Ottawa’s public school board will begin a year-long study this fall to tackle the problem of overcrowding in Kanata schools. The board approved plans last week to create two accommodation review committees to begin a comprehensive study of schools in Kanata north and south including: • grade structure • program offerings • transportation • co-ordinated changes to bell times • feeding patterns to high schools • the need for new schools • school boundaries. The Kanata north committee will also look at the logistics of building a school between Kanata Lakes and Morgan’s Grant; so far the board has struggled to find a suitable site to build a badly-needed school. The review of Kanata schools will also consider the impact of introducing all-day kindergarten at all elementary schools by 2015. “The group that will form the accommodation review committee has had its first meeting and is eager to start looking at recommendations for the short-term and for the long-term for all 11 elementary schools,” said Kanata trustee Cathy Curry.
NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING WORKS
The committees will likely provide recommendations for the most pressing concerns within six weeks, said Curry. The committees will include parents, principals, teachers and board officials. Each committee will hold a minimum of four public meetings. They will look at schools with both low and high enrolments and the shortage of sufficient space, which may limit students’ access to physical resources like gymnasiums and libraries. During the public meetings the committees will discuss school profiles, accommodation options and recommendations for each family of schools. The Kanata North study will include the following schools: Jack Donohue Public School, Roland Michener Public School, South March Public School, Stephen Leacock Public School, and W. Erskine Johnston Public School. The Kanata South study will review: Bridlewood Community Elementary School, Castlefrank Elementary School, Glen Cairn Public School, John Young Elementary School, Katimavik Elementary School, Roch Carrier Elementary School and W.O. Mitchell Elementary School. The committees are scheduled to hold their first meetings starting in November. email@example.com

BLAIR EDWARDS KOURIER-STANDARD A 22-month-old Bridlewood girl is in critical condition in hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest on Oct. 28. Ottawa paramedics responded to an emergency call at 5:37 p.m. on Thursday night. When they arrived the girl was in her crib; she didn’t have a pulse and wasn’t breathing. Paramedics administered heart medications and started intravenous lines. They also inserted a tube
into her lung and began ventilating (breathing for) her on route to the hospital. “The child did respond to that,” said J.P. Trottier, spokesperson for the Ottawa paramedics. “That was when we managed to get a pulse back.” “It’s really not clear for us what caused the child to go into cardiac arrest,” he added. As of last night the child was in critical condition. “There’s an uphill battle for that child in the next few days,” said Trottier. blair.edwards@ metroland.com

He said he doesn’t agree with O’Connor that council can vote on the issue, because the site plan is just one portion of a project that will cost the city a substantial amount of money. “You don’t green-light a project like that in one vote,” he said. “You can’t separate them.” He noted that the next council appears to be fiscally conservative, so Doucet said he doesn’t see why the new councillors would want to take on the debt associated with the Lansdowne project as proposed. John Martin, who started the Lansdowne Park Conservancy to put forward an alternate proposal for Lansdowne, sent a letter to O’Connor stating that the vote should be held for the new council because council only approved continuing negotiations with the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG),
but not the actual amount of the project. In a previous memo to council dated Oct. 26, O’Connor told councillors that transferring previously approved funds between projects would not be restricted. Much of the city’s corporate activity can continue during this period, because council has delegated authority to city staff through the approved budget. O’Connor told councillors that “legal and operational staff will continue their due diligence in reviewing this matter as the report in question (Lansdowne) is finalized, as well as with regard to any other reports that may be considered by council prior to the end of this term.” O’Connor declined a request for files city staff were reviewing in light of the lame-duck status of council. laura.mueller@ metroland.com

Father of Kanata gives talk at library BLAIR EDWARDS KOURIER-STANDARD Bill Teron has a recipe for city-building he wants to share with the public. It’s called Kanata. The housing developer has been invited to the Ottawa Public Library main branch on Nov. 17 to discuss how he designed and built the community of Beaverbrook and paved the way for the high-tech industry to create Silicon Valley North in the Kanata North Business Park. The idea behind Kanata, said Teron, was to build a self-contained community where residents could work, live and play. In the 1950s and ’60s, Teron assembled 1,200 hectares of land in the former March township and designed a “botanical garden city,” building homes around natural features, preserving trees and rock outcrops instead of using the traditional approach of clear-cutting and blasting. “I bought the land and I created the philosophical concept and the planning concepts based on the arts and science of community building.” People like Terry Matthews and Michael Copeland took advantage of the workerfriendly area and spurred the growth of a high-tech cluster. Heritage Ottawa asked the “Father of Kanata” to prepare a document for the library outlining the history of Kanata. “They wanted a little bit more detail than the tidbits you get from different articles and speeches,” Teron said. THE IDEA OF KANATA Born in Gardenton, Manitoba, Teron moved to Ottawa when he was 18 and started his own company Golden Ridge Developments Ltd. The future real-estate mogul cut his teeth designing and building suburban developments in the Bells Corners, housing estates

called Lynwood Park and Arbeatha Park. “I came from a rural background in Manitoba,” said Teron. “I went from deprivation to building grand houses.” Teron started working in Ottawa shortly after the concept of the Greenbelt came into being, a master plan developed by Jacques Breber in 1950 to prevent urban sprawl from gobbling up the rural areas of Ottawa. The belt of green undeveloped land was created to contain a city that could provide municipal services for half a million people. “I built in the spirit of the Greber plan,” said Teron. Armed with a plan to create a satellite community on the western outskirts of Ottawa, Teron bought 1,200 hectares of greenspace in the former March township. “I needed a lot more room to do largescale planning,” said Teron.
The plan called for housing, schools, an industrial area that would later be developed by the high-tech industry, and recreational facilities such as a golf course. “Nobody sets aside 200 acres for a golf course,” said Teron. “Does it mean people don’t like a golf course?” he asked. “No. “All of a sudden you’re into the art of community building rather than the art of house building.” The problem with allowing developers to build one small project after another on the fringes of the city is this lends itself to urban sprawl, said Teron. Beaverbrook was designed to be a garden city, Teron said, with nature as the primary architecture and streetscapes of trees, not buildings. When the community was first designed, thousands of trees were planted throughout the neighbourhood to provide an envelope of nature for the houses. Streets were given curbs of greenery instead of hard concrete and the community was surrounded by large open spaces – 40 per cent of common green space instead of the five per cent guaranteed under law. Hydro poles and wires were eliminated from the design and street lighting was designed to blend in with the community’s natural surroundings. The Kanata project was later given a design award from the Canadian Housing Design Council. “It won the only design award for a total community,” said Teron. Former prime minister Pierre Trudeau took notice of Teron’s achievement, and in 1973 appointed the Kanata man chair and president of Canada Mortgage Housing Corporation, a position he held until 1979. “He said, why am I doing things the government should be doing?” said Teron.

Open house to address transit complaints BLAIR EDWARDS KOURIER-STANDARD The city will hold a meeting to discuss transit problems in Morgan’s Grant and Briarbrook at the Mlacak Centre on Nov. 8. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson organized the meeting after hearing complaints on the campaign trail from residents about chronic problems with late buses and slow express routes. The early-morning express route 60 is often crowded and forced to skip stops, said Wilkinson, and some commuters complain about slow routes that snake through the Kanata north communities before heading to the Kanata Transitways. “Some routes are having more problems than others,” said Wilkinson. Some commuters are having a hard time

ﬁnding a parking spot at the Eagleson parkand-ride, added Wilkinson. Pat Scrimgeour, manager of transit service design for OC Transpo, will be on hand to listen to commuters’ problems with transit. In 2010, OC Transpo added service to express route 60, said Scrimgeour. He said that as long as the buses run on time and at capacity, OC Transpo provides enough vehicles to serve the needs of commuters in Morgan’s Grant and Briarbrook. Wilkinson suggested splitting some of the routes that run through both communities to shorten the runs. But splitting the runs would just mean the buses would run less frequently, said Scrimgeour. “There’d still be just as many people on each bus,” he said. email@example.com

Kanata Kourier-Standard - NOVEMBER 04, 2010
Voters wanted something new The winds of change are blowing in city hall’s direction – 10 new councillors and a new mayor will enter council chambers come Dec. 1. But until then, we’re going to hear a lot of quacking. Not the usual politicking or the sort of lamenting that came from councillors and candidates during the election period. No, the quacking we have now is the sound of a lame-duck council on its last legs. The current council is riding out the last wave of its term, but that wave hasn’t crested yet. Unlike municipalities that take things slowly during the post-election period (lame duck or not), Ottawa will be forging ahead with a number of significant votes. While there is no legal re-
quirement to push ahead with votes or delay them until the new term begins, there are different schools of thought on the matter. In St. Catharines, for example, the city clerk told media that staff is reducing council’s workload to save some contentious votes for the new council to “put their stamp on,” even though it is not a lame-duck council. Of particular interest back in Ottawa, the first site plan for Lansdowne will come before council this month, and because there is no dollar figure attached, it’s up for this council to give it one more kick at the can. Council can’t vote on things that will cost the city more than $50,000, but that won’t stop it from tackling rezoning Les Soeurs de la
Visitation convent in Westboro, and a portion of a land exchange deal for the South March Highlands proposed by Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. Both of those issues are expected to be on the agenda. While it is comforting that our current council isn’t throwing in the towel and intends to get something done before it leaves, councillors should consider the way voters have spoken. Electors gave council a resounding new mandate, and whether or not we see much change in position with the councillors-elect, the point is that voters wanted something new. The voters have put their faith in a new slate, and that’s something council should be aware of as it wades into votes this month.
Steering the boat with a hockey stick Once it was clear that Jim Watson was going to be the next mayor of Ottawa, a somewhat distracted television commentator tried to sum things up: “Jim Watson is someone who can stickhandle the city over some turbulent waters,” he said. A word to the wise: Keep Jim at city hall and away from canoes. This is not to say that there wasn’t someone in the mayoralty race with expertise in paddling with a hockey stick. With 20 candidates in the race, it is entirely possible. The problem is, how could any of us voters have known? On election day, the sight of those 20 names on the ballot was a shock, accompanied by a momentary fear of not being able to find your favourite’s name. And it brought to mind an ancient gem of local political wisdom — that candidates with names beginning earlier in the alphabet have an advantage. There are clearly some flaws in the theory — for example, the fact that a candidate beginning with W won this time; and in the previous election, the candidate beginning with O beat the candidates beginning with C and M. Still, you can see how a less than perfectly informed voter might take the easy way out when faced with 20 choices and looking for someone who can stick-
CHARLES GORDON Funny Town handle over troubled waters. Now, we would not even be considering such options if the voters were well-informed about those 20 candidates. But even with all our sophisticated means of communication that does not seem possible. Those responsible for news coverage and candidate debates, our main sources of candidate information, narrowed their focus to four mayoralty candidates, leaving the other 16 to fend for themselves. This is understandable. You’ve probably been to all-candidates meeting where, before you get to hear the candidates you’re interested in, you have to endure what feels like hours of the ravings of nuisance candidates, going on about substances in the water, magnetic orbiting public transit systems and the need for cat licences. But here’s the thing: not all little-known candidates are
nuisance candidates; many of them have interesting things to say. Some have specific issues that are worth considering. Others are gaining valuable campaign experience that will make them serious candidates the next time. The people will never know any of that unless these candidates are heard. The challenge is how to make sure that serious, though little-known, candidates get a fair hearing while at the same time discouraging nuisance candidates. Various methods have been tried, the silliest one being to raise the deposit fee for candidates. The logic behind this – that candidates willing to ante up a substantial amount a money are somehow more sincere and responsible than those who are not – is clearly undemocratic, not to mention faulty. You have only to look at the number of loony rich people in politics, in both Canada and the U.S., to get the point. It may be that those who are truly driven and those who are truly compelled to draw attention to themselves will never be dissuaded from seeking office. Our concern should be with the others – so-called “unknown” candidates who have things to say. New media provides some of the solution. Those seeking to know anything at

all about the elections for school board could find information on the websites of the candidates, which was a good thing considering how little attention the elections received in the mainstream media. But let’s not forget that there are many people – 15 per cent of us, according to Statistics Canada – who don’t have access to the internet from home. Furthermore, some of the much-touted forms of social media such as Facebook and Twitter, are used by a much smaller percentage of the population than you might think. Here, as in so many other parts of our existence, technology won’t save us. We are up the creek without a hockey stick.

Dear editor of my favorite source for community news; Re: McGuinty mistrust, Oct. 7, Kourier-Standard. I was very disappointed with your Oct. 7 editorial, as it had nothing to do specifically with our community (and read distastefully like an election campaign). There are countless other sources of news, information and opinion related to provincial politics, the more balanced of which you should refer your readers to and encourage them to educate themselves. Please keep your paper focused on local issues, challenges and many accomplishments of the people of Kanata within the City of Ottawa. Marc Labreche Katimavik

said Baas, 23, a former Kanata resident. “Then there is meaning behind everything.” He said a lot of the time weddings are focused on what a bride and groom want and this way everyone has a say in how the special day turns out, as well as helping to keep costs down. PROJECT PRICELESS Already the couple has seen an outpouring of support from friends, family and total strangers. A lady as far away as New Jersey offered to make stationery for their wedding. “As soon as it started happening, we’re like ‘Wow, this might actually work,’” said Kent. People have offered wedding dresses, a tux, to cover the legal fees, a purse for the bride, cash donations, photography and decorations. “We’re not focused on having a classic wedding,” said Kent, who
has a colour scheme of green, brown, orange and cream and certain guidelines she’d like to aim for, but the couple said they are flexible. “We have a plan A and a plan B for everything” she said. “We’re so flexible (about this).” The couple is hoping to be married in the fall of next year if they can find a venue to host the ceremony and celebrations, they said. ‘SEIZE THE DAY’ The couple, who now live in Westboro with their pug Mr. Darcy, was hit by some hard financial times over the past year; Kent lost her regular job and Baas was sent to Calgary for work. After about three months, he realized he needed to get back to Ottawa so they could be together. Kent, who is a freelance illustrator and works with social services, said she used the last of her reserve money to fly out and help Baas, who
now manages DAVIDsTEA, move back home. Baas proposed in Gatineau Park on their anniversary, in the exact spot where he first asked Kent to be his girlfriend. “Jordan leaned in to hug me and my heart was pounding out of my chest,” said Baas, who had their family and friends waiting for them at a restaurant. Kent said it was really special, especially the fact that he knew she’d want to share the news. She said people have been asking why they don’t wait until they are more financially secure to get married, but she said the answer is simple. “You never know where you’re going to be later. (You have to) seize the day.” To read their blog or volunteer services, visit www.projectpriceless. blogspot.com. email@example.com
What first started off as a joke has snowballed into a community effort. Newly engaged couple Jordan Kent and Brian Baas joked about the idea of a cost-free wedding before Baas slipped a ring on her finger. On Oct. 12, two days after he popped the question, the couple set up a blog called Project: Priceless -our free wedding experiment.
The blog was expected to surpass 1,000 hits on Nov. 1, with an average of 101 visits to the website every day. “The joke sort of became, hey this isn’t such a bad idea,” said Kent, 28, who grew up in Britannia. The idea behind the blog is for the couple to get married as freeof-charge as possible by borrowing, trading and accepting donations of items and services. “The biggest part of the entire project is to have everyone involved,”

The wild things will all be at a fundraiser for the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, Nov. 6. Lynne Rowe, founder of the centre which is located on Dunrobin Road in West Carleton, said the event will help to fund the last big tasks before the refuge opens its doors, but its also a chance to reward all the hard-working volunteers. “We’ve had a lot of volunteers come on board and donations made,” said Rowe. “It’s a chance for us to celebrate how far we’ve come and a chance to bring more people in who are interested in what we’re doing.” The fundraiser, aptly titled Where the
GROWTH Kanata has ballooned since the heady days of the 1970s, when Teron first started building a botanical garden city in Beaverbrook. “I think it’s grown in a very proper way,” said Teron. “Sure it’s different, but it sure fits in with a diverse (multi-use) town.” Teron said he avoided building in the Glen Cairn area because it was near the Carp basin and presented a flooding risk for homeowners. “A lot of people are frightened about water problems,” he said. “I stayed on high land.”

Wild Things Are will feature local band The Wise Guys, a silent auction and a vegetarian meal from The Green Door Restaurant. “We’re encouraging people to come and do their Christmas shopping,” said Rowe. Original art, prints, photographs, jewelry, tote bags, pet bandanas and gift bags for pets are among the items attendees can score, she said. “We’re hoping people can come learn about us, get some great Christmas gifts and have a great time,” said Rowe. Volunteers will be dressed up in face paint and ears as fawns, foxes and squirrels. Guests can dress up or dress down, the event is “come as you are,” said Rowe. Money raised at the event will go to outfit the intake trailer with electricity and complete the fencing for the enclosures, said Rowe. Tickets are $40. The event will take place at the Sandy Hill Community Centre, 250 Somerset St. East, from 6 p.m. to midnight. For more information and to purchase tickets visit www.ccwr.ca.

Trudeau wanted Teron to bring his philosophy of community building into the CMHC. In 1982, Teron was appointed an officer in the Order of Canada.
The secret of preventing urban sprawl is to plan communities on a large scale, said Teron, with schools, recreation facilities, room for industry clusters, surrounded by fingers of the Greenbelt. “If there was an error in Greber’s plan it’s he didn’t provide the fingers,” said Teron. “The finger concept is absolutely essential – the finger stops the sprawl.” When you don’t have communities with clusters of industry, you create bedroom communities with commuters who clog the highways to work in other areas of the city, said Teron. The original design of Kanata called for space for a monorail, a hospital and a town centre. “I don’t build hospitals,” said Teron. “But I left the space for it.” Teron will give an hour-long talk about the design and history of Kanata at the Ottawa Public Library main branch on Nov. 17 starting at 7 p.m.

Kanata holds vigil of hope for 14-year-old Brodie Rafter BLAIR EDWARDS KOURIER-STANDARD More than 100 people held a vigil of hope for a 14year-old Glen Cairn boy battling cancer at Walter Baker Park on Oct. 28. Friends and family of Brodie Rafter stood together at the Kinsmen Baseball Diamond outside the Kanata Recreation Complex holding Candles of Hope in support of Brodie and all those who have battled cancer. Brodie was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in October 2009. He has just completed his second round of chemotherapy, radiation treatment and a stem-cell infusion after learning his cancer, an aggressive form of Hodgkins, had returned last spring. Chantal MacDonald, who helped organize the event, said the response to the Candles of Hope vigil was overwhelming. “It was emotional and uplifting as much for us as it was for the family,” MacDonald said. “The Kanata community stood together to spread hope and once again demonstrate that their support remains strong and their prayers powerful.” Still weak from his cancer treatment, Brodie was on hand for the ceremony, where his coach, Robert Rathwell, who is also the president of the Kanata Little League Baseball Association, read inspirational quotes from cancer survivors such as Mario Lemieux and Saku Koivu. “If you find hope in prayer, then pray,” said Rathwell. “If you find hope in being with others, then look around you. If your hope is on reflecting on the good times, then reflect, sing a song, whatever you need to do – this is a celebration of hope and community.”
Everyone at the vigil held a candle, shielded by the wind by Dixie cups. “He was pretty weak,” said MacDonald. “He stayed against the fence and personally thanked people who came out. “We did not expect Brodie to be there as he is quite weak right now, but he came and still showed everyone that wonderful smile. He was especially pleased to see the entire Kanata Stallions team there.” Lou Nistico, general manager of the Stallions, brought the team to the vigil. “Each one of them took the time to shake his hand and give him a hug,” said MacDonald. Brodie attended the event with his parents, Scott and Tracy, and his older brother Kyle. “His mother just stood there and cried, overwhelmed by the support of the community,” said MacDonald. A fundraiser for the Rafter family will be held on Nov. 13 at the Carp Agricultural Fair, starting at 6 p.m. The fundraiser will feature a dinner, dance and silent auction and proceeds will be used to help offset the financial burden the Rafter family is facing. Brodie’s dad took unpaid leave from his job with OC Transpo and his mom shut down her day care business to help their son during his treatments. Volunteers will be selling tickets and t-shirts, as well as accepting donations at the Hazeldean Mall on Sunday, Nov. 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please visit www.brodierafter.com or for tickets, call Rob Rathwell at 613-8363538. An account has also been set up at the Bank of Montreal in the Signature Centre under the name: Baseball for Brodie. firstname.lastname@example.org

Laurel Johnson is giving back to the triathlon community by helping organize the Kids of Steel triathlon and duathlon every year. “The triathlon community in general is an extremely supportive community,” said the recent Paul Van Steen Sport Achievement Award winner. “I think it’s part of the culture – if you race, you give back to the community.” Johnson has been volunteering with the Ottawa Kids Triathlon, the organization that puts together the runs every year, since 2005. In 2008, she became the race director of the Uplands Kids of Steel and is also now the vice president of Ottawa Kids Triathlon. The whole idea behind the event is to get children involved and active, she said. “The kids that are doing it really, really enjoy it,” said Johnson, who finished her sixth Ironman competition in early October. Participants’ ages range from 3 to 15, she said. Children age 3 to 5 compete in a duathlon where they run, bike and run. Upwards of 5 years old, participants swim, bike and run. “It’s a real race,” said Johnson, who lives in Bridlewood. “The focus is not on winning or losing, the focus is on participation. There’s an incredible sense of accomplishment you get when you achieve something.” The organization offers training camps at the race site for kids to
get a feel for the track, but she said most kids don’t train for the events because the distances are appropriate for their ages. As they get to the teenage years, it starts becoming more a competition, she said. “At that age, the kids are kind of competitive,” said Johnson, who also works for the Department of National Defence in the legal department. “The thrill of competition means you need other people around to push yourself.” Triathlons and duathlons suit many different abilities, she said. Whether the child is a great runner, swimmer or biker is not the end goal, but to see them have fun. “Whatever they’re getting out of it shows on their faces,” said Johnson. “The kids have fun.” Ottawa Kids Triathlon usually put on two races a year, one at CFB Uplands and one in Westboro, with an average of 120 to 200 children participating in each event. It only costs $35 to register, which helps cover the cost of the event. “It’s a lot of fun for $35,” said Johnson. She said her team, which is called Team Packed Apps, is looking at the idea of funding underprivileged kids. “The idea is kids who are getting into trouble, on the fence as to which way their life is going to go, this will help,” said Johnson. “They become part of something that’s really productive.” For more information, visit the website at www.ottawakidstri.ca. email@example.com

Rob Marshall was close to celebrating his 200th donation of blood when he went into septic shock, requiring 50 units of blood.

Giving life with blood SAM COOLEY KOURIER-STANDARD
Sunday, November 7, 2010
Rob Marshall of Kanata can tell you the importance of donating blood this fall. The business analyst and long-time blood donor was on the cusp of being recognized and honoured for this 200th donation of blood when he began to feel a pain in the back of his thigh. â€œAt first I thought it was just a pulled muscle, but it didnâ€™t go away,â€? said Marshall. After a few days of persistent pain, he went to the hospital, where the complications increased. His vital signs crashed and he went into septic shock. Being put into a two-and-a-half-week-long drug induced coma, Marshall woke up clueless as to what had happened to him. He was told he had contracted a relatively serious case of necrotizing fasciitis, which is more commonly known as flesh eating disease. He underwent several operations to remove the dead tissue, and to prevent the disease from spreading. â€œWith those five surgeries, I went through 50 units of blood products,â€? Marshall said of the ordeal. â€œEven the finishing surgery, which just in-

cluded sealing an incision on my leg required blood,â€? he said, â€œAnd thereâ€™s no substitution for it,â€? If untreated, this disease is said to have a 73 per cent mortality rate. Marshall feels he is extremely lucky to have recovered so well. He frequently runs, swims and exercises to stay healthy. â€œWith one donation it can help save lives,â€? he said. â€œWithout that (blood donations), I wouldnâ€™t be here right now.â€? Marshall is an example of countless people who need blood. On Thursday, Nov. 25, Canadian Blood Services will be hosting the fall blood donor clinic at the Almonte Civitan Hall. According to the organizationâ€™s statistics, 50 per cent of Canadians say they or a family member have needed blood-related products for surgery or medical treatments. Ann Luu of Canadian Blood Services said the goal is to collect 130 units of blood. â€œIt is not hard to see how important blood can be,â€? she said, from a nasty car accident to an unexpected diagnosis of flesh eating disease. The clinic will run from 2 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 25 at the hall, located at 500 Almonte St. email@example.com

councillor for Kanata from 1991 until 2003 and was defeated by Mayor Larry O’Brien in the 2006 municipal election. Munter has served on the Ottawa-Carleton District Health Council (1994-97), as co-chair of the Regional Task Force on Health Care (1998-99) and as a member of the Ontario Public Health Capacity Review Committee and chair of its governance panel (2005-06). The Champlain LHIN has an annual budget of $2.25 billion to fund 11 agencies across the region. LHINs oversee nearly two-thirds of Ontario’s health-care budget by planning, integrating and funding services for hospitals, community health centres, long-term care facilities and mental health and addiction services. While they do not directly provide the services, they are intended to provide a community-wide focus for how health-care funds are allocated.

Grocer helps 13-year-old boy BLAIR EDWARDS KOURIER-STANDARD Employees and shoppers gathered at the front of Laura’s Independent Grocer to meet Justin Vachon on Thursday night, Oct. 28. Store owner Laura Dubois presented the 13-year-old Bridlewood boy with a $20,000 cheque to pay for the conversion of his family’s van to make it wheelchair accessible. Justin has Pelizaeus-Merzbacher syn-
drome, a rare disorder of the central nervous system causing a delay in co-ordination, motor abilities and intellectual function. Maryse Derouin, the boy’s mother, said the adjustments to the van make it much easier for the family to travel to the grocery store, the bank and on other errands. “I literally would say, ‘I’m just going to stay home until someone can stay with him,’” said Derouin. firstname.lastname@example.org

JENNIFER MCINTOSH KOURIER-STANDARD Canadian students will hear how a woman went from being part of a Viennese musical dynasty to fighting for her life in Auschwitz during the Second World War. Thanks to a partnership between the Jewish Federation of Ottawa (JFO) and the Israeli Embassy, a special concert will be put on by the famed Raanana Symphonette to tell the story of Alma Rosé. Her family truly was a wonder. Her father Arnold Rosé was a violinist and concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic. Her mother Justine Mahler was the younger
sister of conductor and composer Gustav Mahler. This member of Vienna’s upper class went from playing her music for enjoyment to using it to save her life. The concert will be the kick off to Holocaust Education Week in the capital and will run on Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. at the Shenkman Arts Centre. There will be three performances in total before the troupe heads back to Israel. The event is the kick off for a week-long program to educate the Ottawa community about the holocaust and its after-effects bringing forth the idea that education and knowledge can promote tolerance.
Francie Greenspoon, senior director of communications for the JFO, said that the two performances on the morning of the 10th will be directed at the students. “When we appealed to schools, the 500seat hall sold out in 48 hours,” Greenspoon said in an email. “These were all schools in the Ottawa Carleton District School Board. We consequently added a second concert on the 10th at 1 p.m., which also sold out immediately. This means 1,000 Ottawa area students from a wide variety of schools will have a unique opportunity

to learn about the life of Alma Rosé.” The musical piece is based on the book of Richard Newman called Alma Rosé: Vienna to Auschwitz. Newman wrote the book because he was acquainted with Rosé’s brother, who came to Canada after the war and eventually worked as a professor at the University of Western Ontario. In the 1930s, Rosé started a women’s orchestra in Vienna — called the Waltzing Girls of Vienna.

Orchestra brings story of Jewish hero to students
ROSE, FROM 17
Kanata Kourier-Standard - NOVEMBER 04, 2010
When the war broke out, Rosé travelled to London to hide out with her family. “They weren’t living nearly as well off at that time though,” Orit Kremer, consular at the Israeli Embassy said. “So Alma decided to go back to Europe and perform to provide for her family.” Rosé was captured in France and sent to live in Auschwitz. “The Germans had heard about her music and made her perform at the camp for the officers and other prisoners,” Kremer said. “She gathered some 50 women together—those who could play and some who couldn’t—and
by doing so, saved their lives.” Rosé died in the camp in 1944, it has never really been determined how she died, but like so many others, the harsh conditions and lack of food would have certainly taken their toll. Thanks to the Symphonette, Rosé’s music can live on. Her story will be told by other talented musicians from around the world. “This is the only performance,” said Kremer. “The orchestra will fly directly to Ottawa and when they are done, go back to Israel.” Tickets for the show are $18 and are available by calling 613-580-2700 or at the Centrepointe Theatre box office. email@example.com

Around 10 people bundled up against the fresh snow fall and braved the cold weather on the morning of Oct. 31 to remove the old broken causeway (above, right) leading to Heron Pond in the South March Highlands. The group cleared the debris and installed a new cedar walkway over the swampy path in only five hours. Advertisement
Are Headaches Controlling Your Life? If You Are Over 20 and Suffer With Migraines – These Are the Facts You Must Know Day after day of being miserable, irritable, and looking a lot older than you really are. The frustration of knowing that your friends and family don’t understand what you’re going through. Add this to doctors’ visits, MRI’s and CT scans -- which only come back with “normal” results. And that’s not all… trying one medication after another, feeling like you’re on a merry-go-round of drugs. All this is enough to make anyone want to scream! IF YOU DO NOTHING ELSE, READ THIS:
Why? Because patients tell me too often…
“I only wished I had found you sooner”
• A full set of specialized x-rays to determine if posture or joint problem is contributing to your pain.
Every week I hear how women suffer from severe headaches – statements like… • “I feel like my head is in a vice.” • “My eyes hurt and I feel so drowsy.” • “I have to lay down.” • “I’ve had migraines since childhood.” • “Muscle tension in the neck and pain into the shoulders.” They tell me they’re sick and tired of jumping from one headache medication to the next. Here’s what I hear… “I am tired of being looked upon as someone who is only out there to get medicine. I only want RELIEF. I don’t know why that is so hard for people to understand. I don’t want to be treated badly anymore. I want to get help, and I want to get rid of the headaches.”
613-317-0639 Space is limited
• An in-depth consultation about your headaches where I will listen to the details of your unique situation.
2) Medical science has discovered that most headaches are caused by damaged structures around the neck like joints, ligaments, muscles, and cervical discs, all of which have complex nerve endings.
My name is Dr. Craig Hazel, and I’ve been helping patients with neck tension, headaches and migraines live pain free for years now.
This happens so often, I decided to do something about it and run this ad. Just call today and here’s what you’ll get…

Why not get rid of those debilitating headaches today? Read the full facts on this page!
WE WILL DO THE SET UP & CLEAN UP
I’m offering hope for those suffering with headaches. For only $67 you will get a full comprehensive & professional examination.
1) Approximately 2.2 million women are affected by migraines in Canada.
3) Research has proven certain natural treatments have great success with headaches – even better than massage and medications – and with no side effects.
Birthday~ Parties for your Kids
Imagine being able to live life like a normal person again, pain free and without headaches -- being able to play with your kids, enjoy time with friends, and not have to worry that your headache will hit you at just the wrong time.
• A thorough analysis of your exam and x-rays where we’ll map out how you can get rid of your headaches once and for all. • A special report complimenting your recommendations that reveals the foods you should never, ever eat when suffering from chronic headaches.
Could This Drugless Treatment Be Your Headache Solution Too? Numerous studies have shown the beneﬁts of spinal adjustments with headache patients.
The Boline Study This study compared two groups of headache patients, half went for chiropractic adjustments, the other half took amitriptyline, a medication often prescribed for the treatment of severe tension headache pain. After six weeks, researchers found that chiropractic patients experienced almost no side effects. And only the chiropractic patients continued to report fewer headaches when treatment ended.
The Duke Study Medical experts concluded that spinal manipulations resulted in almost immediate improvement for headaches. Patients also had signiﬁcantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of headaches than a commonly prescribed medication.

CFUW/Kanata hosts history of currency CATHERINE FAUBERT CFUW/KANATA Canadian Federation of University Women/Kanata has invited Louise-Anne Laroche to give a presentation on the history of currency. It all started with the trading of salt and now we have new Canadian currency made with polymers to avoid counterfeiters from copying our money. Laroche, coordinator of public research and evaluation at the Currency Museum with the Bank of Canada, will be bringing samples of currency, as well as explaining the difference between a fraud and a valid bill. The event will take place Nov. 10 at Stonehaven Apartments, 70 Stonehaven Dr., Kanata, at 7 p.m. Last month, Constable Ryan Strottman addressed about 50 people on personal and property safety against criminals. His main message was to be vigilant, use common sense and be aware of your surroundings. He said there are ways to safeguard yourself, and the Ottawa police department offers residents a free home security inspection. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson presented our clubâ€™s president Joy Forbes with a certificate to commemorate our 15th anniversary of community work. We also received documents from MP Gordon Hunter and MPP Norm Sterling in honour of our valued contributions to our community. CFUW/Kanata is a vibrant club with 132 members. Annually, we give seven female high school students $1,000 scholarships for further education, one $500 bursary to a mature female student returning to Algonquin College and a one time scholarship to a blind student in memory of one of our members. For more information view us at www.cfuwkanata.ca or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
MRCA offers info about septic systems MARCH RURAL COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION Many rural residents have questions about septic systems, and the March Rural Community Association will be devoting their November meeting to this topic.

Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings, on the second Wednesday of each month. At our last meeting on Oct. 12, we had the opportunity to ask questions of all candidates for Councillor in Ward 5. We also elected our executive and board of directors for the coming year. Looking ahead to Dec. 8, we will have a short presentation from our community police officer Peter Jeon, and Brent Christoff regarding setting up a Neighbourhood Watch program for our community.

Dare to Compare the Chartwell Experience
A.Y., All Saints teams earn cross-country crowns A.Y. Jackson Secondary School athletes Alec Jarvis and Brendan Howard ran to a 1-2 finish and led their midget boys’ team to a national capital title as a dozen students from Kanata high schools qualified for the OFSAA cross-country running championships at last week’s city finals in Blackburn Hamlet. Jarvis crossed the finish line of the five-kilometre Hornets Nest course in 16 minutes, 52 seconds to earn the individual gold medal, but was quick to emphasize that the way his team pushes and encourages one another was a big key to everyone’s success. “It’s great to have the support,” explained Jarvis, who will compete at the provincials with Tanyo Matheson-Fitchett, Laurence Elder and David Choi as well as Howard. “Plus, I didn’t really want to go to OFSAA by myself. I get a bit nervous and I like having people to talk me down. I have a couple buddies who are pretty good at that.” Jarvis has been keeping a close eye on
the results of other qualifying competitions across Ontario and expects to be in the mix once he faces the province’s best midgetaged runners for the first time this weekend. “I think I’ll be up there,” the Bytown Storm triathlete of two years added. “I’m hoping for top-five. I’d love to win, but it’s going to be tough.” A.Y. Jackson edged Nepean 81 points to 88 for first place in Ottawa. Holy Trinity’s Mickey Day displayed lots of guts as he emptied them numerous times during the race and afterwards, but managed to win the junior boys’ 6 km race nonetheless in a time of 21:56.12. “I felt terrible,” said Day. “I don’t know what it was – adrenaline and stomach sickness? I felt fine when I woke up, but when I got here, it got worse.” Day, who finished eighth in the midget boys’ competition at last year’s OFSAA, earned his second consecutive city crown with the effort.
“I didn't want the kids to worry about me being alone. With a wide range of activities that I share with friends, my retirement has never been this much fun.

A pair of Kanata schools were favoured to grab the two midget girls’ OFSAA team qualifying berths, but the west conferencechampion Earl of March Secondary School girls were disqualified for not wearing identical uniforms with the school’s name, nickname or crest on them. That left the door wide open for the All Saints Catholic High School group of Delany Borsato (the team’s top finisher in fourth place), Emily Howard, Taryn Morley, Alex Morley and Keisha Lewis to cruise ahead and capture the city title by 34 points over Hillcrest. The final qualifier from Kanata was Mother Theresa Catholic High School’s Bridget Hayes, who squeaked through to OFSAA as the final individual qualifier thanks to her sixth-place finish in the junior girls’ event. The best two teams of five runners – with the placing of the top four athletes combining to form the team score – from the national capital meet qualified for OFSAA, along with the top-three individuals not already qualified with their team. The OFSAA provincial championships will take place Saturday, Nov. 6 in Etobicoke.

DAN PLOUFFE KOURIER-STANDARD The OFSAA cross-country running championships will be coming to the nation’s capital next year at this time, but where exactly the competition will be staged remains up in the air. Two locations are the front-runners – Walter Baker Park in Kanata and the Hornets Nest in Blackburn Hamlet. “Both courses have their drawbacks, and both courses have something to offer,” said Glebe cross-country coach Kirk Dillabaugh, noting opinion is divided among the OFSAA organizing committee members. “Personally,
I’d like to see it out in Kanata. It’s something different.” Dillabaugh lists the wide-open Walter Baker layout as a big advantage for spectators, it’s easy logistically to set up the course as well as sponsor and registration tents, and there are indoor washroom facilities next door at the Kanata Recreation Complex. “Some of the concerns out there is that it’s kind of boring,” said Dillabaugh. “It’s not as exciting as it could be since you’re running around soccer fields for the most part. We do have that little stretch through the woods, and the hill, but it’s pretty flat for the most part. “That’s what the Hornets Nest has to offer – it’s definitely hilly terrain and there’s a lot of
trail running.” But the Hornets Nets also has its problems; two-way traffic during a few segments in the woods can cause confusion, and with the spread-out course, it’s quite difficult for spectators to follow the action. “Especially for the midget girls’ and junior girls’ race, you see them run around the soccer fields and then they disappear until the race is over,” said Dillabaugh. Another major concern is the first portion of the trail through the woods near Green’s Creek is now paved, which wasn’t the case when OFSAA was held at the Hornets Nest nearly a decade ago. “OFSAA’s the first week of November,” he
said. “If we get any snow, ice or freezing rain – even without it – those downhills are pretty treacherous with the pavement.” Dillabaugh said he would actually prefer to host the high school provincials at Mooney’s Bay, although that’s not an option because there isn’t an area that could accommodate the required 65-metre wide start line. Colonel By coach Natalie Cote, meanwhile, said she would like them to look into potentially holding the race around Pineview Municipal Golf Course. The organizing committee will meet at the conclusion of this fall’s cross-country season to choose the future OFSAA location. firstname.lastname@example.org

How can I winterize my car?
Firstly, make sure you have decent winter tires. Allseasons will work, but winter tires perform better even with dry roads. Wipers are very important, companies produce coated versions for winter. Batteries should be checked for proper charge, and your anti-freeze should be checked for freezing temperature. Lastly make sure it’s kept clean. Road salt can corrode any bare meal very quickly if left untouched.

Why is it important to avoid premature loss of baby teeth? Primary teeth ﬁrst of all help your child digest probably and have normal development of his/her digestive tract. Primary teeth also hold the spot for the adult tooth to come. If a primary tooth is lost too soon it slows the development of the adult tooth. The neighboring teeth will shift into the missing tooth’s position blocking the growth of the adult tooth, causing a misaligned bite needing orthodontics in the future or causing jaw joint pain. Ask us about the importance of baby teeth, call us today.

Did you know that working smoke alarms can cut your chances of dying in a fire by 50 per cent? In Ontario, having working smoke alarms is not only a good idea -- itâ€™s the law. Ottawa Fire Services recommends you install a smoke alarm on every level of your home, and outside your sleeping areas. Test your smoke alarms every month and change the batteries twice a year when you change your clocks. A working smoke alarm and a home fire escape plan will significantly increase your chances of surviving a fire.
the same, to win the gold medal.â€? Players were also chosen from the Ontario Junior Hockey League, the Ligue de hockey junior AAA du QuĂŠbec, the Maritime Hockey League, and the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League. Before games on Oct. 28, Rankin is tied for 11th in league scoring with 21 points, while Norris is three behind at 18. Norrisâ€™s 14 goals is the second highest output. The rest of Canada East will face off against the United States and Sweden in Group A while Canada West, Switzerland and Russia make up the Group B. email@example.com
The Canada East roster was announced for the upcoming World Junior A Challenge on Oct. 25 and two local CHL players will not be on the team. Nepean Raiders centre Brent Norris and Kanata Stallions left winger Kyle Rankin were left off the 20-man squad by Canada East and Brockville Braves head coach Todd Gill. Norris and Rankin were invited to the teamâ€™s tryout on Oct. 4 and 5 in Whitby, Ont. In total, eight players from the CHL teams were selected.
Leading the way will be the Cornwall Colts, who will be sending four forwards â€“ Tyson Spink, Tylor Spink, Mitch Zion and Kyle Baun. Pembroke Lumber Kings centre Matthew Peca made the team, as did Brockville goaltender Justin Gilbert, defenceman Tyson Wilson, and forward Maxime Dumond. The tournament takes place from Nov. 8 to14 in Penticton, B.C. â€œWe are very pleased with the players we have chosen to represent Canada East in Penticton,â€?

Kanata Kourier-Standard - NOVEMBER 04, 2010
JENNIFER MCINTOSH KOURIER-STANDARD The Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation is looking to the community to build a team and fight women’s cancers. Karalee Bowles, manager of development for the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation, said the hospital is looking to bulk up the team for two reasons. The first is to raise awareness and fight against cancer. The second is that now that people can choose the health care centre those proceeds go to, there’s a chance those funds can come back to the hospital.
“With the new cancer centre, it would be great to have some of the $2,000 people raise to come back to the hospital,” she said. Bowles said the QCH has traditionally had about four or five staff members participate in the two-day walk in June. The support of those who walk, will fund the critical work of Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and their efforts to end breast and gynecologic cancers, diseases that one in seven Canadian women will be diagnosed with in their lifetime. Bowles said that the hospital plans to hold two information sessions, the first will be in the hospital’s innovation room on Nov. 22 from 5 to 7 p.m.
She also said the second talk would be on Dec. 2. Speakers will be at both sessions and include people who have done the walk before and cancer survivors. “There will also be people there from the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation,” Bowles said. On June 4 and 5, people who register for the walk be joined by thousands from the community. Walkers can choose to do either the whole two days or a distance walk on the first day.

Dance for a healthy birth Women can now dance their way through pregnancy. Bridlewood resident Zoia Nikolova decided to start up a dance class for expecting women. “I felt there was a need for a class like this for pregnant women,” said Nikolova. She said she heard about the class and felt it was something Ottawa-area women could use to optimize their pregnancy. Already popular in the United States, Dancing for Birth started in St. Louis, Missouri. Just now gaining in Canada, the class supports women throughout their pregnancies and postpartum. “The dance class uses all kinds of forms; belly dance, African dance, Latin dance,” said Nikolova. “It’s a combination of dances from all over the world.”
No experience is required to sign up. The classes also include educational information in regards to pregnancy and labour, she said. “It gives moms a support group,” said Nikolova about the prenatal classes. Nikolova is a doula, similar to a midwife. She said she provides personal support throughout pregnancy, labour and birth. “The pregnant women I’ve been working with usually say there are only a few classes they can find; aqua fit, prenatal yoga,” she said. “This gives them a different, fun way of exercising.” The classes promote optimal fetal positioning in order to have a shorter, easier labour. “I just want to bring more awareness to women in the area,” said Nikolova.

Symphony’s fall classical not dampened by snow at Glen Cairn United Church, 140 Abbeyhill Rd., in Kanata. The Bassoon Concerto in B flat Major was Mozart’s first concerto for wind instruments. It was written in 1774, when the composer was only 18 years old and remains the most beloved and requested piece in the entire bassoon repertory. To perform this concerto masterpiece, we are honored to present Montreal-born bassoonist Richard Hoenich. Hoenich enjoys a distinguished
KANATA SYMPHONY The first snows may have fallen, but the Kanata Symphony’s upcoming Fall Classical Concert is a great chance to come and warm up to the sounds of Mozart’s gorgeous Bassoon Concerto, featuring internationally-renowned bassoonist Richard Hoenich. Also on the program is Les Preludes by Liszt, as well as Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8. The concert will take place on Saturday, November 13, at 8 p.m.
career as a performer, conductor and educator. While acting as principal bassoonist with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra from 1979 to 1991, he began to work as a conductor, and was eventually appointed associate conductor of the MSO by music director Charles Dutoit. Hoenich’s work with gifted aspiring professionals in Boston and also in Miami inspired him to devote part of his energies to help mold the next generation of
orchestra performers. To that end, he returned to Canada in 2007 to establish the Brooke Valley Musician’s Retreat in rural Ontario, where he works with professional musicians who want to win an orchestral position but have yet to be successful. Franz Liszt’s Les Preludes, the third and most famous of his thirteen symphonic poems, was first composed 1848. The piece was conceived as the introduction to a choral setting of a poem-cycle titled The Four Ele-
ments by Joseph Autran. Symphony No. 8 in F Major was composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1812, during a period of deep unhappiness. Tickets for the concert are $10 for adults, $8 for students or seniors, and $25 for families and are available through Domenic’s music, CD warehouse, orchestra members or at the door. Refreshments will follow after the concert. Please join us for a delightful evening of unforgettable music.
The Hospital Insider: Hope is spelled “CyberKnife” Nicolas Ruszkowski
Nicolas Ruszkowski VP, Communications Ottawa Hospital
We all know someone who has been touched by cancer. My “someone”, my best friend Christelle, passed away in France seventeen years ago. She was eighteen. Christelle was booked for surgery immediately after her brain cancer was detected. Complications from surgery led to paralysis. Then came radiation, with painful skin problems and fatigue. Finally, chemotherapy: nausea, immune deﬁciency, hair loss. Today, there is new hope. The doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers and psychologists who help our patients battle cancer are ﬁnding a better way. This fall, The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre unveiled Eastern Ontario’s ﬁrst CyberKnife. Cyber-what? CyberKnife is the world’s only robotic radio-surgery system. In other words, it performs radiation therapy with precision and effectiveness of surgery. This allows doctors to get at otherwise inoperable tumors without any incision, pain or discomfort to patients. Krista Kowalchuk, our ﬁrst CyberKnife patient, underwent the ﬁrst of three one-hour treatments with her doctors, neurosurgeon John Sinclair and
radiation oncologist Jason Pantarotto, to treat two tumors located on her spine. Before CyberKnife, Krista’s only options were brain surgery (she has had 5 to remove other tumors) or ﬁve-week courses of daily radiation treatment that could damage not only her tumors, but healthy tissue as well. Today, she needs no anesthetic before her procedure, experiences only slight soreness on the spot where she has been treated, and spends less time in hospital. CyberKnife is especially effective against brain, lung, prostate, spinal, liver, pancreatic and kidney cancers. While it is not “the cure”, it does help ensure that patients like Krista get more compassionate, effective, and timely care. Christelle would approve. Nicolas Ruszkowski is VP Communications and Outreach at The Ottawa Hospital. Each week, he will share behind-the-scenes insight from the hospital. E-mail him at email@example.com

The city’s Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) is keeping a close eye on motorists who disregard reserved transit lanes, stop lights and travel the wrong way on roadways during the month of November. In 2009, motorists’ improper use of reserved transit lanes caused 34 collisions – resulting in 11 injuries and one death. The fine for this infraction is $150. Driving the wrong way on a roadway is also a serious issue on Ottawa roads. Between 2007 and 2009, 76 collisions were caused by motorists driving the wrong way on roadways – resulting in 39 injuries, three of which were serious. Running red lights also made a large impact on 2009 traffic with 773 collisions reported. These collisions resulted in one death and 376 injuries – 18 of them lifethreatening. Each month since 2004, STEP has been profiling and enforcing specific traffic safety priorities.
